MUTUAL FUND TRANSFER
Mutual funds usually take a little longer to transfer, as each mutual fund company has its own requirements for making charitable contributions. Allow at least one month for the transfer. Follow the same steps as above, and be sure to let us know that you have initiated a mutual fund transfer to the Neighborhood House account by contacting Nicole Morrell at or (617) 825-0703 x3290.
If you would like to transfer non-marketable securities, contact Nicole Morrell, Director of Development at . *As always, be sure to consult with your tax advisor when making a charitable contribution to any organization.
